Park in BC (JF Bergeron photo)
The parks around Campbell River provide an amazing variety of outdoor experiences.
Hiking, mountain biking, swimming, fishing, camping, boating, kayaking, picnicking, or perhaps just a gentle stroll after a scenic car drive: All of the above are everyday activities in municipal, oceanside, provincial, and regional parks in Campbell River and vicinity.
Strathcona Provincial Park
Strathcona Provincial Park, founded in 1911 as BC's first provincial park, is located at the north (and most accessible) end of the largest, most rugged, and mountainous green space on Vancouver Island (a 40-minute drive east of Campbell River along Highway 28). Buttle Lake is popular with swimmers, boaters and campers, while the Elk Lake Trail is a popular spot for family day hikes.
